Modern Calligraphy - Houston Calligrapher
Modern calligraphy is very polarizing. Some people love it and some people hate it. I'm pretty objective and understand both views on it although I am typically a bit of a purist. Over time, I have found that modern calligraphy has it's place and I use it in some instances over others. I use it when I want to exhibit a carefree, easy-going attitude. Serious isn't always my thing :). Here, I wanted to mix things up a bit. I love contrast and color with my work. Not my clothes as I'm quite often in all black or gray hiding under my big floppy hat, but definitely my work :). With contrast in mind, I combined a relaxed, almost textbook lettering with modern calligraphy and figured "let's add some color too". Why not? Enter my "Color Me Groovy" style. I'm working on a collection of prints that will play with these themes and those will be out later this year. Cheers!
